JANUARY'S JOY


FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 2014


WHOA,
January flew by.
We JUST celebrated New Years,
right?

It feels that way,
seriously.
I blinked and it was over.

 Its been a whirlwind of emotions & activity around here,
of the good and not so good nature.

DELIVERY :0
that's  right, 
(Hormonal stuff, PAIN in body, death of great uncle, financial situations...)
slow recovery,
sleepless nights,
blessings,
joy,
and
MORE 
sleepless
 nights.....
sigh


New baby, January baby, 2014 baby
My baby love 2 weeks old :)


My little guy decided to make his debut early!
15 days early.
And that. Changed. EVERYTHING.

No finishing the last of the posts I was working on,
AKA nesting for the blog hahaha
 or even catching up on reading everyone else's.
 
It was definitely earlier than we expected.
My first born son was 10 days early,
my daughter 7.
Just that pattern alone, would put me days away from my actual due date,
Right?
That was the logic.
But what do I know?
Sheesh, really thought he was going to let mommy finish all the intended.
I should of known, it doesn't work that way. :)



Ok, enough of the small-talk.

Let me share the humorous,
though not at the time,
super painful,
waiting it out  in denial,
possibly TMI, 
Godly orchestrated, 
delivery story
+
 our newest joy.


                                                                                                              
humor me PLEASE ,
this little, big blessing, has stolen my heart!


FYI long post.
Lots of words,
long read,
you can turn back now,
I'll understand,
not really.
Buck up, I'm gonna talk your ear off!
I warned you.

I WISH CHRISTMAS WOULD LAST LONGER!

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014


I seriously can't believe Christmas is over
OR
that 2014 is here!


We so enjoy the festivity of it all.
The decor, scents, treats, music, movies, fellowship, friends, family time,
and most importantly, celebrating the best birthday of all time,
the birth of Jesus!

Christmas 2013

I personally know 2 people and I'm sure there's more worldwide,
who dislike Christmas.

Is it even possible? lol
These 2 individuals love the Lord, 
but for some reason, 
DO
NOT
ENJOY
the Christmas season like most.

We on the other hand are not packing it up,
shutting it down,
moving on,
or
moseying over,
to new and better things?

NOPE.

Christmas tree lights are STILL on- even though the tree is pretty much dead.
The lights outside are still up and shining brightly. 
Although I put together a wreath ON Christmas Eve, day, 
and displayed it with total pride, 
because I had no other decor there the whole month,
I'm not ready to remove it from the door.
All that
 last.
 minute.
effort.
 deserves some credit.

I think we'll take down "Christmas" in the next week or so,
(BEFORE this baby boy comes!)
although I'm pretty sure hubby and kids would love to keep it up full time (;


Hopefully you had an amazing celebration with your friends and family.


Here's a look into our Christmas 
&  end of year festivities
